7:03 am
presumably to relieve some of the others who have been there. this has been going on for a long time since 3:30 local time yesterday. students were getting dropped off from school when this man allegedly went on the school bus, opened fire and killed the bus driver, took one of the students hostage. now let's hear from one of the neighbors, one of the people in the area who know what's going on. he tells us what happened from here. >> my neighbor got on the school bus shortly after it stopped and let off a couple kids. got on the school bus and demanded two children. he was only able to get ahold of one. i believe he shot the bus driver three times and then retreated back into his land. he is now hidden in his homemade bomb shelter. >> reporter: that's where that man has been with the child ever since. what's also new that we learned

7:06 am
about the child, the involvement other than confirming there is a child here that is involved. >> is the child okay? there's been contact with the man, his state of mind and the condition of the child. >> caller: it's too early to release information about the contact we have had with him or the child. we are limiting that information as well. >> appreciate your time. we know it's a busy morning for you, too. clearly a developing story. let's talk about the powerful storms impacting people from mississippi up to pennsylvania. al, you have been keeping an eye on them. >> a powerful frontal system is bringing warm, moist air ahead of the cold air. tornado watches from louisiana up into west virginia as the afternoon wears on. we expect those to move further east. we got a risk of strong storms from mobile, alabama up to pittsburgh, as far south as the

7:15 am
no -- you know, i have no position on any of this. i have no opinion about it. i'm still secretary of state. i can't really engage in politics. and for the foreseeable future, i don't think that i will be at all political. >> today, clinton has a farewell lunch at the white house. he could have to eventually choose between both clinton and biden if they choose to run for the presidency. for now she plans to work on the clinton foundation and get some extra sleep. something you can relate to, savannah. >> we'll continue to ask her the question and i guess she'll continue to dodge for the moment. thank you so much. >> you bet. >> now here's matt. imagine if you had morme money than just about everybody else in the world, once you got past homes, shopping, cars, doing nice things for your family and your children, what would you do next? microsoft founder bill gates has given it away. donating billions of dollars in
7:16 am
an effort to fix what he sees as the biggest problems facing humanity. today he is out with his annual update on the foundation's progress. mr. gates, as i said, it's great to have you here. good morning. >> good morning. >> often times we use millions and billions and they almost lose their meaning. we're talking about your foundation, which has now given away more than $26 billion over the last 18 years. when you look at the way you've spent the money, what makes you the most proud? >> it's amazing how we improved health for the poorest children in the world. in 1990, over 12 million children a year died. now that's down to about 6.9 million. and a lot of that is the vaccine effort that our foundation and governments got behind. we can do more. >> talk about an example of that. last year, based on the work of your foundation in india, a country of 1.2 billion people, 27 million live births a year, there was not one case, new case
7:17 am
of polio reported for the first time ever. was that simply a money thing? was that going in and throwing money at a problem or does it take a lot more than that? >> well, we're down to three countries with polio. so, getting india done was a huge milestone. it's going to take a lot of money to finish it, about 6 billion more. but we're going to have to use satellite maps. we're going to have to use little gps trackers to make sure the vaccine teams go where they're supposed to. a lot of technology. a lot of political will, meeting with leaders and making sure they prioritize this. but we want to make this the second disease ever eradicated. >> reading a letter to people who follow your foundation, often times it's not just about putting money on a problem. ethiopia would be a good example. you have to fix the organizat n
7:18 am
organizational structure or else you give money and it's used inefficie inefficiently. >> that's right. you have to talk to the leaders, help them get the system set up, to get medicines out to the rural parts of the country. and seeing how to do that has made a very interesting mark. we've got a lot of people in these countries that come up with solutions. no, it's not check writing. >> there are so many great causes out there. and you cannot help everyone. when you go to bed at night, do you -- are you overwhelmed by the idea that you can't help everyone? and does that trump the feeling of the pride you have in the people you have helped? >> no, because we're seeing so much progress. we pick two things to focus on, helping the poorest in the world, often with health and nutrition, and taking the education system in this country and making it an engine of opportunity by reducing the dropout rate, helping teachers
7:19 am
get better, using technology. we just dive into those and do the best we can. >> you can help in huge way with his the amount of money that you have amassed. we've heard of the generosity of so many other people like warren buffett and our own mayor, michael bloomberg, and others who don't get recognition. the average person out there is generous, i think. they want to be philanthropic but can't give a lot. if someone out there can afford to give $10 to any cause, where would you want them to send it? >> there are a lot of wonderful choices. there's one called donors choose where teachers put up projects and those are for small amounts of money. you go to that website you can help fund a thing that a teacher is trying to do with their class. can you go to save the children. they help mothers have safe births. you can go to th takes donations of any size, so it's amazing that you can be sure these organizations are going to put your money to good
7:20 am
use. >> we make a lot of -- we talk a lot about the progress that you are achieving here. can you compare for me, though, the feeling you get today from being able to give away millions and billions of dollars to the feeling you had as a young man being able to make your first million dollars? there's no crime in looking back and saying, boy, that was fun. compare the feelings for me. >> what you really feel is what you've achieved. if a piece of software gets out there and lots of people love it and lets them get their work done in better ways, that's exciting. po when polio finally gets eradicated in the next six years, that feels good, too. i like my work just like i like making software. >> tell me about your kids. i think they're around 6, 8 and
7:21 am
11, those ages? >> yep. >> i have kids, too. what age do your kids get cell phones? >> we've inside our family you get one at age 13. they always come home saying, other kids have it, it's embarrassing not to. >> you just bought me two years. do you skand melinda keep the passwords? >> not the 16-year-old. she's independent, and that's always very tricky for parents now. >> bill gates, congratulations on your foundation. it's always great having you here in new york. thank you. coming up, a first look at the super bowl commercial you'll be talking about long after the big game. also ahead, the man who admits to masterminding that girlfriend hoax with manti te'o is speaking out for the first

7:31 am
through, i just realized i had to move on with my life, and i had to get living and let this go. >> reporter: he said he spent hours with the young california man and his parents. >> ronaiah had a lot of young life experiences that damaged this young man in some very serious ways. >> reporter: they all watched katie couric's interview with te'o and watched in disgust with what they called his humiliation, falling in love with a picture used without permission and accompanied by a hoaxer's voice. so persuasive to te'o that even after it was suggested he had been had, he talked about his girlfriend lennay kekua as if she was real. but te'o, ron take tuesday told mcgraw, had no role in the hoax. >> absolutely, unequivocally no.
7:32 am
>> reporter: the big question is why? why did the hoaxter keep it going not just for months but for years, most likely knowing it would go public to everyone's regret. >> here we had a young man who fell ro mantically, deeply in love. >> did he say that? >> reporte . >> i asked him straight up, was this a romantic relationship with you? and he said yes. i said, are you, therefore, gay? and he said, well, when you put it that way, yes. and then he caught himself and said, i am confused. >> reporter: te'o believed the voice on the line was his lennay. >> i love you so much, hon. >> doesn't that sound like a girl? >> but ronaiah tuiasosopo insisted the voice was his and that the relationships on both sides around a fatally fake core had to end. >> there was a time when te'o
7:33 am
and lennay broke up, but something would bring them back together, something going on in their life, therefore, my life. >> reporter: a life interrupted by a cruel hoax. >> i think this guy sounds extremely confused. we want to get a check of the weather now from mr. roker. >> thanks so much , guys. we have kids here from the guardian school in manhattan. do you guys go to school after this? >> yes. >> you're a good-looking group. i like it. catholic schools raising the standard. i went to a catholic school myself. let's show you what's going on. we have lake effect snow coming. the great lakes have no ice on them. they have strong winds coming out of the west-northwest, so this is going to dump snow squalls for the next 72 hours. generally about 3 to 6 inches, but from traverse city, marquette down to kalamazoo

reporter has this inspiring story. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. this is truly a remarkable story of modern medicine, and a young man's courage and determination to overcome an imaginable diversity. ferdinand marco sat before a news conference flexing his arms, newly transplanted just six weeks ago. >> i never accepted the fact i didn't have arms, so now that i have them again, it's almost like it never happened. >> reporter: as a soldier in iraq, he lost his arms and legs in a roadside bomb, the first double amputee in the u.s. military. after weeks of therapy in a military hospital, he mastered his new limbs, all four of them. but listen to morocco when he talks about the loss of one but not the other. >> i hated not having arms. i was all right not having legs.
7:36 am
not having arms takes so much away from you, even your personality. >> reporter: so last december a team of doctors at johns hopkins working 13 hours straight transplanted two arms from a deceased anonymous donor. due to the threat of rejection, the bone marrow was also transplanntran transplanted. while motion is limited and he still has no feeling in his fingers, progress is coming. scratching his nose is now second nature. the first time he actually moved his arms was a shocker. >> one of my friends was just, like, freaking out. he was like, did you do that on purpose? >> reporter: morocco's goal is to drive his car and compete again in sports. with his unbridled spirit and deep determination, his doctors have no doubts. >> i feel like i'm getting a second chance to start over after i got hurt. >> reporter: now, doctors predict it could take as long as three years before those limbs fully regenerate, and before morocco gains maximum use of his
7:37 am
arms. but i can tell you, being in that room with him yesterday, you could just feel all of his energy and enthusiasm. so i'm guessing he's probably got his own timetable, savannah. >> that he does. thank you. dr. d.p. andrew led the 13-person team that led the transplant. good morning to both of you gentlemen. >> good morning. >> dr. lee, i'll start with you. we saw that brendan is already using his hands to text. we saw him scratch his nose. is this a lot of progress for somebody who is only six weeks out of surgery? and how do you expect him to develop over these next years to get back the use of his hands? >> well, brendan has done extremely well since the surgery. we're very happy with his progress. but the progress eventually will take time, as you already mentioned. we expect that he will first regain elbow motion in his transbender right arm and then
7:38 am
wrist and eventually fingers. feelings will also gradually come back, which is the important part of the arm function. everything, again, can easily take two to three years. >> this was a 13-hour surgery, as we mentioned, 16 surgeons. and it's incredibly complicated. they had to connect plates and screws, muscles and tendons, veins and arteries, nerves and then finally skin. can you, dr. shore, even just put into words what an incredibly complex procedure this is? >> well, it's a procedure that all of us rehearsed multiple times to try to take as much of the unknown and unexpected out of it so we could break it down into an organized fashion, and the way we do that is by surrounding ourselves with excellent surgeons who have a great interest who are already very good at what they do, and then we all put our heads together and come up with what we think is the best possible plan, we practice it over and over, and when the real event shows up, everything went just like we had rehearsed it, so we
7:39 am
were very happy with the results. >> dr. lee, so many people were impressed with this young man yesterday. he comes across as upbeat, funny and positive. you yourself, i think, called him stubborn in a good way. how much does it make a difference that the patient is able to be so upbeat and so involved in his recovery? >> well, we think that's extremely important, and that's why we selected brendan as one of the candidates. he is a very determined person who has endured a lot and absolutely deserving because he has sacrificed so much for our country. mostly it's his motivation for hard work and his optimism that made him such an ideal candidate for our operation. >> we're happy to see it going so well so far. i hope you'll keep in touch with us and let us know how he's doing, dr. lee and dr. shore. thank you, gentlemen, and congratulations as well. >> thank you, savannah. coming up, the commercials

modern day david and goliath story involving a 15-year-old girl from mississippi that fought one of the biggest beverage companies. >> very few of us read the labels for everything we eat or drink but that's exactly what sarah kavanagh does. when she came across an ingredient that troubled her, she decided to do something about it. when 16-year-old sarah kavanagh from hattiesburg, mississippi, reached for a gatorade after playing outside with her younger brother, she noticed an unfamiliar ingredient, brominated venlgable oil. the vegan turned to google and was surprised at what she found. >> potentially bad side effects. i don't want my family to drink it. i wouldn't want anyone else to drink it. >> reporter: bvo is a food additive. it's banned for use in foods in places like europe and japan and many have concerns about its safety.
8:37 am
>> in animal studies, high doses of bvo clearly are harmful, whether the low doses in human foods are also harmful, we simply don't know. this chemical needs more research. >> reporter: food and drug administration says based on its review of the science, the fda has determined that bvo is safe and presents no health risks at the permitted level. still, sarah decided to challenge the company. with a letter, asking them to remove bvo from their sports drink. >> we know that you can do better than this. >> reporter: over 200,000 people signed the petition. sarah was even invited to be a guest on "the dr. oz show." >> it's because of brave kids like sarah that have brought awareness to these issues. >> coca cola, dr. pepper and pepsi who use bvo in their products say it's safe and will continue evaluating it. but last week pepsi announced they're in the process of removing the controversial
8:38 am
ingredient. while our products are safe, we are making a change because we know some consumers have a negative conception of bvo and gatorade. a big-time victory. >> i'm not afraid to stand up for what i believe in, what i think is right. >> reporter: for this small-town girl. now, pepsi says they've been working on an alternative ingredient for bvo for more than a year, well before sarah began her campaign. the newly formulated drink will be on shelves in a month. matt? >> thank you. sarah is with us now with dr. ó> thank you. girl from hattiesburg, mississippi, knows the story of david and gm0goliath, doesn't ? >> definitely. >> do you feel like you're david and you defeated the giant? >> i wouldn't take it to that level. they are a very big company.qr(& it's been very empowering to know that somebody as young as i am -- you know, just one person. but backed up by like 200,000 people, we could take down a company like this. >> you were 15 at the time you
8:39 am
start this had. >> yes. >> you read that label and saw that ingredient. you had enough curiosity in you to do your research. once you found out what it was, why did you think it was worth your time and effort to actually try to get it changed? >> i saw the side effects. it wouldn't be something that i would want to drink. i wouldn't want my family to drink. i want people to know about it. i don't want anyone to drink it. >> were you surprised that more than 200,000 people joined that petition? >> definitely. i didn't think it would get as much response as it did. it's really great to know that all those people are backing me up and they care about the ingredients and what they're eating and drinking. >> the fda says it's safe at the proper levels. is it a big deal that pepsi backed down and took this out? >> it's a big step. to be clear, to highlight this, it's not permitted in many other countries. the fda took it off the generally recognized safe list and put it in -- >> a nebulized category.
8:40 am
>> and it's stayed there 42 years. what was interesting and why we wa wanted to profile sarah's story for, it made a change that we couldn't do ourselves. >> in the media, we love david and goliath stories. are we making more of this than we should? was this a change that was going to happen anyway? >> ooirm proud that pepsi stepped forward and made the change. i think there was going to be a nudge to push them. i think it's true for all these soft drinks, all the products we have in front of us with the exception of the gatorade, which as you mentioned will be changing, have it in front of us. that's the same family that we use in fire retardants, flame retardants. why would i want that in my drink, especially since it's the only reason it's there to to emulsify the artificial flavors? why take a chance if you don't have to? >> you call yourself curious and argumentative. do you have another crusade in your future? >> i'm not sure. a lot of other beverage
8:41 am
companies use this product and a lot of people have been asking me, what are you going to do next? and give me some suggestions. i have some things in mind. i'm not really sure yet. i'm definitely ready to take this to the next level. >> something tells me you'll be back on this show. sarah, congratulations. >> thank you so much. >> doctor, always good to see you. i know you'll have more on this issue, by the way, on your show today. up next, mr. michael bolton on his struggles and his successes in the music industry. he'll be joining mitch, our audio guy, in just a couple of moments. audio guy, in just a couple of moments. first this is "today" on nbc. when i take a picture of this check, it goes straight to the bank. oh. oh look the lion is out! no mommy no!

8:44 am
live"" and his ode to captain jack sparrow. now he's opening up about the struggles behind his success in his new book "the soul of it all: my music, my life." can we start with the jack sparspar sparrow video? >> absolutely. >> i fell in love with you all over again. >> it's great to be discovered four years later. >> did that surprise you at all? and did they have to talk you into doing it? >> yes and yes. they've been doing this on "saturday night live" for years. i'm a very big fan of their work. we met at this hotel in california and andy was sitting across from me and he said, my mother is so excited that i'm having this meeting with you. i said my daughters are going nuts because i'm meeting with you. that's how it started. i read the script. it's disgusting. i can't do t it's funny. it's too gross. i can't do t he said yeah, we thought you might think that so
8:45 am
we'll tweak it. i thought they were too bus toy tweak it. a month passed and all of a sudden andy is e-mailing me. this script is just as gross as the last one. this went on for eight months. >> so you pulled gross off very well. i want to talk about the book. we really get the story of your whole life. we think of you as this singer of romantic pop balladses about bu that is not the person we meet early in life. you wanted to be a rock star. we hear about michael bolton, the star, for lack of a better word. >> i can't dispute that. it's all over the first 40 pages. it was a smoky blur. i was too stoned for woodstock. but -- nice pictures right there. everybody i knew was. that was the hippie generation, the woodstock generation. i thought that was basically what you do. and in music, of course, nobody thought twice about it. but you couldn't get serious about a career or serious about
8:46 am
anything until you removed all the distractions. and that was a big turning point in my life, is when i decided i've got a chance to make it in music and i want all this stuff out of my life. >> you did commercial jingles for a while to pay the bills? >> yes. >> do you remember any of them? ♪ be all that you can be >> that's yours? >> that's one of mine. >> that's very memorable. i think you have a future. >> pretty big one. you've got to practice. i did a lot. at one point i did a video. i was going to get something to drink and opened up a cooler and i had sung everything in there. i had sung diet pepsi, cherry coke, dr. pepper. i had sung everything in there. and i thought, i might need to slow down. i was driving and the first record that was going to be my first hit record came out. i was driving on west side drive coming into new york and i heard one of my commercials and i said oh, this is good. commercials. make some money. then my new single, my new
8:47 am
record went came out and i went, wow, they're playing the record. after that was over a new jingle came out. and i called my manager and said we've got to shut the jingles down. >> total saturation. >> too much. >> rock star dream had enormous success around the time mtv was huge which brings me to, what, the hair. >> the hair, yeah. >> you had long hair for most of your life. >> yeah, yeah. the beatles, the british invasion, i blame them. the beatles and the stones started showing up on tv. my brother and i had two of our own bands. long hair which back then was just over your ears was long hair. got in trouble in school because they didn't want us wearing long hair, influencing other kids. you couldn't walk down the streets in new haven without somebody rolling the window down -- and i mean rolling because they didn't have electric windows back then, and yelling and swearing at you
8:48 am
basically because you had long hair. we came up with our own creative rhetorics, of course. >> was it hard to cut it short? >> it was because there was a connection. besides the beatles and the stones and being influenced, you also had to fight for it. then suddenly you became part of the revolution and the individual expression being your freedom and your right. and so, you know, the rebellion is part of who you are as a kid, as a teenager. but 20 years later, columbia records had spent 50 million dollars picturing posters of you, your likeness, on buses and posters and billboards and one day i just said, i think it's time for a new look. i'm going to cut it. and it was scary. it was really scary. the guy that cut my hair would cut brad pitt's hair and tom cruise and other people in film. so my assistant and my stylist
8:49 am
teamed up and conspired actually to get me to cut it while i was thinking about it. his name is chris mcmillan. he cut it. i figured i would look like brad pitt or tom cruise, and it didn't happen. >> no, i think it worked. >> it worked. >> it's not like sampson and deld delilah. the hair is not the source of your power. >> no, it's still there, the voice. >> michael bolton, it's great having you here. thank you. >> thanks for having me. we'll go to the kitchen and have a potato palooza. four ways to cook spuds. there's thousands of them but w

"how to cook everything." this is like the three-piece suit you used to buy, with the reversible jacket. >> recent development absolutely the best, if you're only going to have one. they can sort of take the place of russets, baking potatoes, very starchy or waxy potatoes which sometimes are called new and can be red or white.
8:52 am
but yukon gold has the features of both. we can use them in everything. >> one size fits all potato? >> absolutely. >> first recipe, what is it? tater tots? the '8 0s called. so excited. >> why did you scoff? >> no, they're my favorite thing in a world. there are nobel prize winning tater tots in the frozen food section. why would you make them at home? >> because a, they're fun and, b, they're better. >> they're fun. >> we boil potatoes then peel. much easier to peel. it is quite a process. we do that. then we grate them. >> okay. >> that's a demo. >> show that i could. >> we don't need that. >> cornstarch, garlic powder. >> you have to peel it, no getting out of the peeling? >> no getting out of t it's a
8:53 am
labor of love. when we get to the end of the -- you may think this really has been worth it. you toss them together. toss together the grated potatoes with the cornstarch and roll this into a log or shape little hand-formed tater tots so your guests and friends know you did this yourself. >> they're not perfect. they go into hot canola oil? >> this is the perfect one made by bianca. there's an imperfect one, made by moi. >> they taste the same. >> they taste exactly the same. when they're done, they all look great. here we take them out. we have a couple. it all happens this quickly. >> yeah, sure. >> you take them out and you dry -- you know, get the excess oil off. then you whip them into the oven. >> how long? >> 10, 15 minutes maybe until they're beautiful, light this. >> okay. great. >> you can freeze them between this stage and that stage and then you can pretend that they're ore' ida.
8:54 am
>> perfect. the next one is more high brow, this is pomanette. >> because they're small versions of pomana. the mandolin which, of course, has caused many a bloody finger. that's not going to happen here. this is just the best possible tool to slice potatoes thinly. then -- good morning. >> good morning. >> toss the potatoes with melted butter and you arrange them in a lovely, concentric circle pattern which, if you do that, they will then look like this. if you're too lazy to do that -- >> butter, potato, salt and pepper? >> and bake. you turn them -- well, you turn them. >> that's okay. >> by the way, i said four ways. since we're running out of time you also have mashed potatoes with some herbs and -- >> braised potatoes with red
8:55 am
wine and pancetta. >> recipes on . you're watching "today in the bay." >> good morning to you. 8:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. a somber day for the family of a missing dublin girl marking 24 years to the day she disappeared. a walk will be held tonight at the dublin school where she was last seen walking back home in 1989. the family and supporters will travel the same path she took before she was abducted. the public is invited for tonight's walk at wells middle school at 7:00 p.m. a church service will then be held at st. raymond catholic church. how is our forecast looking for today? >> we'll see temperatures in the low to mid-60s around the bay area today. a bit warmer than tomorrow. a few extra clouds. cooler heading into the weekend. another update at 9:25.

9:00 am
>> you get a hipper audience. not that older people aren't hip. >> no. >> why are you looking at al? >> do you think they should -- >> don't look at me. >> do you think they should put the whole commercial out there or should they do what some advertisers are doing and just put a teaser out there? >> i don't know, i think they put the whole thing out there. >> they did that last year with the volkswagen darth vader ad, that sure didn't hurt them. >> there are some companies that are holding out. >> i suppose if you have a commercial with a big surprise, you would want to tease it. >> yeah. we didn't think of that idea, the commercials letting you decide the ending. >> yeah. i loved the dad, by the way. >> the doritos. >> it is unbelievable. >> the dads can relate. >> i love it. >> i loved it. i love the guy with the beard. >> is that my wedding dress, she said? >> the wife says when she gets home. >> speaking of commercials, our take two is a taco bell ad
9:01 am
that's stirring up a little bit of controversy. we're not going to tell you what it is. see if you're offended by anything in that ad. >> veggies on game day is like punting on fourth and one. it's a copout. secretly people hate you. introducing taco bell, six crunchy tacos, and six loco tacos. a game day tradition. >> anybody offended? >> the vegetable people. >> the vegetable people. >> the vegetable lobby is very upset. >> why? >> because you're mocking vegetables and making a -- putting a stigma -- >> it's taco bell! >> thank you. i survived my whole teen years on taco bell. it works out. >> childhood obesity. >> oh, come on. >> it's a super bowl party. >> i'm telling you what they're saying. >> a super bowl party and that case, by the way, looks like beer. maybe that's where they should be more offended. >> it's shaped like beer. >> one has nothing to do with the other. by the way, when you do bring
9:02 am
vegetables, people look at you. >> i'm one of the people that brings the vegetables. >> you do? >> really? >> now you wonder why you're not getting invited. >> oh. that's not nice. >> no. >> i thought you wanted me there. >> i do like vegetables. >> if you want a vegetable tray at a super bowl party. >> you can have vegetables and you can have tacos. >> i always bring a healthy option. >> you can have both. >> by the way, all of this said, taco bell pulled the ad. a taco bell spokesman said we didn't want anyone to misinterpret the intent of the ad. come on, guys. >> wasn't there lettuce on that taco? >> not enough. not enough. >> is that really it? >> iceberg lettuce. >> tomatoes. >> lettuce on tacos. >> so the vegetables were offended and they won. >> veggie tales. >> our take three, we could not be more excited. have you heard about the kid president? if your answer is yes, you're one of 4 million people on
9:03 am
youtube who have been inspired by this video. >> go and go and keep going. would michael jordan have quit? if he was tired. he retired. before that, in high school, what if he had quit when he didn't make the team? he would have never made space jam. i love space jam. what will be your space jam? what will you create that will make the world awesome? nothing if you keep sitting there. that's why i'm talking to you today. this is your time. this is my time. it's our time. you can make every day better for each other. we're all on the same team, we better start acting like it. we've got work to do. we were made to be awesome. let's get out there. >> we are lucky this morning to be joined by the kid president himself, robby novack! yeah. >> i would vote for you. >> it is an honor to be here with his brother who

weight? darlene? >> i think it depends how you say it. >> really? how you say it? give me an example of how you present this. >> what you don't want to say is that -- what you could say is that we need to eat healthier, we need to shed a few pounds and adopt a healthy lifestyle and we could do that together. >> i tell my husband he needs to lose weight. frankly, if you look at the life span of married men, they're healthier than single men. i think it's because they have wives who take care of them. >> that's true. >> i think it's context, too. you could have an argument and say you need to take out the trash and you've gained too much weight. >> that's just abuse. >> it happens sometimes because we spend so little time communicating and we get that window, instead of talking about what we want to happen, we throw something in. >> you had an ex-boyfriend in college? >> i did. i won't name names but he knows who he is. >> oh, name names. >> he looked at me and my physical appearance and said, you know, you really need to workout.

9:36 am
>> that's still snooping. >> not a shared account, who is willing to confess that you actually have gone in and read an e-mail without permission? >> that's my point. everyone has done it. >> for my husband, i don't need permission to get on his e-mail. >> so it doesn't count as snooping? >> my husband gets the breaking news to his e-mail, i rationalize, it just keeps me up-to-date. i'm not looking for anything else. >> moving on. when is it okay to borrow or loan money to family friends without discussing it first? i think it's never -- shouldn't you tell your spouse or significant other? >> yes. absolutely. >> it depends. >> what do you mean? >> who you're lending the money to, a few hundred dollars for a girlfriend to purchase something you don't have to say something but if it's $10,000 for your irresponsible uncle jimmy who is bankrupt and blows all his money, maybe you should be more open. >> tell me what happened to you

10:00 am
we wanted you to feel at home. i reached for it. >> just wanted to sniff it. >> he said it was called baptist wine, which is grape juice. >> mr. huckabee, he's a sweet man. are you finished with your tour, book tour? >> i'm going to go to palm beach this week and do a book signing. >> people love you down there. >> at jennifer miller's jewelry store. >> you have to share her. >> i will share. okay, guess where we're going. >> we're going to los angeles. >> yes, we are. we're taking the show on the road, sunny california. >> all kinds of details how you can join us out there. starting february 11th. >> we're going to have two weeks of shows. >> two weeks of shows out there. >> today, though, is mild here. it's going to be 50 degrees. >> it's just weird. >> weird weather. >> 50-some degrees, foggy where i live, wet.

10:02 am
>> that makes it worse. we'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed. if you have all that, then why can't you make the marriage work? i'm not saying they don't have it, i'm not questioning. the wording is always interesting to me. i think if you've got all those components in your relationship, why would there not be hope for that marriage? >> we don't know what goes on. >> just for the press, just so you can say we're both being adults, it's going to get nasty. i think that's what it really is. >> something that struck me about her relationship with her husband, i remember being envious is a strong word, but thinking, wow, they are very, very lucky. i remember how it seemed how deep it was, how open it was, and how it seemed to be steamy, very kind of public steamy relationship. she kept saying, you know, we always keep our relationship, you know, keep the home fires burning, and sometimes after 11 years, you think god, if they
10:03 am
can do that, why aren't we doing that? >> it's hard to keep home fires burning if you're not home. he's on the road. that's a grueling schedule. she's an actress. almost never shoot movies and things where you live. you're almost always on location. it takes a very, very extraordinary relationship to last through that sort of stuff. >> but back to the question, do people who seem to have all that chemistry and they talk about it and you peek in, is it real and why don't i have that. we saw that with heidi klum. >> i don't know why you don't have it, i pray for you every day. >> mock tail, i don't even want it. >> we were so surprised when they broke up. >> they got married every year. >> renewed their vows. >> every time you saw them, they were kissing. >> beautiful babies. >> ashton kutcher and demi moore seemed to be publicly affectionate. you peeked in, oh, if i could just have that. >> not just that that keeps two
10:04 am
people together. it helps. i think that's a big part of our culture problem. >> what's that? >> the media tells us that it's all about sex. sex is a wonderful part of a relationship, but it's one component. you could have the world's great essex life and have a lousy marriage. >> but you always hope you can still have the steam after years and years and years and years. what's the truth? >> you can't. >> that's the end of that. >> you can't. you can have something that's even better and deeper. if that's what you want is just steamy and steamy, first of all, your bodies are going to tell you differently. you age and men lose their testosterone by the time they are age 50, they've lost half it. women go through hormonal changes. why don't you find a different kind of contentment, you know, have those moments when you still rekindle what you have. >> you need the rekindling moments, too.
